Koen Japanese BBQ & Sushi
This is my favorite Japanese BBQ. Awesome service and great food!
Something for everyone and 5 stars in every area. One of our favorite places to eat.
We’ve had the BBQ before and it was great but the sushi was not good. Small and not entirely fresh fish and the squid salad was rubbery. Server was very sweet but a little inattentive.
Koen is one of our favorite places to eat in Lincoln. We had the grill and tried a few new things tonight that were fantastic. The flaming tiger sushi roll was delicious as was the Brussels sprouts.
Why do we like Koen...our visit feels so familiar...our service from Andrew...and the incredible food and warm greeting from all ...we are grateful for the evening...until the next time...😊
koen has the best food and service ever! servers are always friendly and attentive. the bartender gave my friend a free shot for her birthday and we got birthday desserts with candles and a song! so fun!
It was a wonderful experience although service staff was overworked due to a very heavy rush of people. It was UNL’s graduation and there were several large groups there in a constant stream. The food was really great, although portion sizes seemed small. We had to order another entire tray of meat since we were still hungry after two platters of meat plus several appetizers and sushi rolls we had on the “non bbq” side while waiting for our “bbq side” table. Some diners were milling around at their table visiting while others waited but thankfully the staff would politely ask them if they could be on their way to accommodate people who had waited on reservations. We will definitely go back again when it’s not graduation weekend! :)
Very pleasant dining experience. We all tried something different and shared. The food, service and ambiance was wonderful. It’s a different dining experience in that you are participating in the preparation of your meal. We all loved it, and will definitely go back again.
In my honest opinion, Koen isn't just a restaurant! It's an experience that everyone should get to enjoy at least twice every year! Make it your new tradition! Take your kids, parents, cousins, Aunts, Uncles, & Grandparents! All of the meats are prime cuts marinated to perfection and paired perfectly with rice, veggies, sauces, and sides! If your mouth isn't watering by now, go look at the pictures people posted! You won't be disappointed! If you drink, know that you are probably going to be feeling pretty nice by the end of your meal! Full and full! I recommend the Premium for groups of 4 or more. And, definitely, get the Blue Lagoon! It's a drink and it's worth every penny!
Best food and most creative too! I loved everything about this!
Excellent food and drinks along with a fun experience.
Drove an hour in hopes for some good KBBQ. Was great but the sushi was even better! Very pleasantly surprised
Never disappointed! Great sushi this time and our server Andrew was wonderful...always comfortable and we enjoyed our evenings at Koen...thank you and see you soon!
Family birthday dinner was wonderful
Great Food good Service Can't wait for next Omaha Visit
Very cool experience! You cook your own meat at the table. Expensive but worth it and it takes a long time but its an experience so again just a very cool thing to do with the family!
Server did a great job. Would definitely come back. Have told others about this different type of experience.
ALWAYS excellent food and service!...a definite choice for sushi and BBQ...thank you all very much...our evening was outstanding!
This is the best Kbbq place ! Their happy hour is amazing and the food is always great.
Solo dining experience as great! Staff was friendly, prompt with seating even during the busy rush due to my reservation. Overall great experience
We had reservations and were seated on time after arriving early. We tried the Masago-smelt roe and Koen tuna sashimi as starters and then proceeded to enjoy a number of special rolls as our main course. The service and food quality were both excellent. We're looking forward to trying the Japanese BBQ during our next visiit.
Excellent grill and sushi. A fun and delicious experience.
Delicious food and great service. Highly recommend
Great variety - with each dish having its own unique flavors.
Had a reservation, still had to wait 45 minutes for a table
The barbecue at the table was fun and delicious. The stuffed peppers were especially delicious. Great, attentive wait staff. We can't wait to go back.
First time there on Valentine’s Day! Appetizer, sushi, and BBQ were outstanding and so was the service! Can’t wait to go back!
Didn’t even get to eat there. Made a reservation for 7:30 and when we arrived at that time we were told we would be waiting 1 hour to an 1 hour 30 minutes. Terrible
Waited an hour after our reservation time to get seated. Other people waiting were offered drinks my party was not. Good food, fun concept, but they need to figure out how reservations work.
Reservation was for 6:30 but were not seated until 7:15. Several couples seated before us even though they arrived after us. Had to ask front desk to get us seated, most likely just forgot about us on accident. Everything else was great!
I really like this place. I enjoy the whole experience of it. But twice I have ordered sushi on 2 separate occasions with my meal order and twice I am yet to receive it. Keeps getting lost or not put in.
Very good service and atmosphere. Will be back for sure!
Great food! Beautiful place to eat! Fun times with the family!
The food was good, the experience was fun but I think it is a little overpriced.
The food was fantastic. Definitely would go back. Only issue I had was the waiter didn’t come to our table for almost 15 mins after being seated. And when he did come he wasn’t very personable or give us much information on the food. The manager had to come refill our drinks for us and I could tell was trying to smooth things over. She was fantastic.
If you haven't been to Koen yet, don't wait any longer. It's great food and a fun experience!
Service can be a little slower since they work both sides but the food was absolutely amazing. Great environment and friendly staff! Will be going back.
I had the shrimp/scallop yakisoba and it was delicious! Yakisoba noodles tasted just like my friend makes. I also had the spider sushi and it was yummy.
Well worth the price you pay. The hardest thing to decide is where you want to put all the food on your table at so everyone can share!
Koen has great cocktails and food...inventive sushi rolls and friendly service...and we were lucky to receive the featured dessert...could not have been a more perfect holiday evening...thank you Trey and Koen...Merry Christmas 🎄
